This is the first fanpost I have done and depending on what you guys who read it think of it, I may do more. Occasionally, I post some amusing pictures, stories about dumb people, flubbed headlines ect... Some people have found it amusing so I have decided to start making fanposts about them. This first one is one about dumb lawsuits, please enjoy and write comments below to give me an idea if I should continue doing this. Thank you.
1)People should have the right to take legal action against someone who have wronged them if they can legally prove it. They should just make sure they sue the right person. And we mean PERSON.
A woman who was bitten on the buttocks by a police dog lost her case because she sued the wrong defendant, according to ClickonDetroit.com
The woman filed her suit against the dog. That only works if you expect to be paid in Kibbles and Bits and Bits and Bits.
The judge not only dismissed the suit against poor Scruffy, but also fined the woman for filing a frivolous suit. The dog did not offer any comment because he’s a #*$&ing dog.
2)Robert Lee Brock, a prisoner in Virginia in 1995 wished to be removed from prison and placed in a mental institution. In order to achieve his goal, he decided to sue himself. He claimed that his crime was committed whilst he was drunk, which was a violation of his religious beliefs. He claimed that he had violated his own civil liberties. He sued himself for $5 million but to make matters worse, he claimed that the state should pay as he was behind bars and without an income.
3)This is a true case of believe it or not. Christopher Roller, a resident of Minnesota sued David Blaine and David Copperfield – demanding that they reveal their secret magic tricks to him. He demanded 10% of their total income for life. The reason for the suit is that Roller believes that the magicians are defying the laws of physics, and thereby using godly powers. But it gets worse. Roller is suing not just because the magicians are using God’s powers – he is suing because he thinks he is God and therefore it is his powers they are stealing.
A Charlotte, North Carolina man, having purchased a box of 24 rare and very expensive cigars, insured them against... fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of fabulous cigars, and having yet to make a single premium payment on the policy, the man filed a claim against the insurance company.
In his claim, the man stated that he had lost the cigars in "a series of small fires." The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason: that the man had consumed the cigars in a normal fashion. The man sued, and won.
In delivering his ruling, the judge stated that the man held a policy from the company in which it was warranted that the cigars were insurable. The company, in the policy, had also guaranteed that it would insure the cigars against fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire," and so, the company was obligated to compensate the insured for his loss. Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the judge's ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars he had lost in "the fires."
However, shortly after the man cashed his check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case used as evidence against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning the rare cigars and sentenced to 24 consecutive one-year prison terms.
5)Ex-student Jason Wilkins sued the University of Idaho in July of 1994 for $940,000 to pay for injuries he suffered when he fell through a third story window while mooning students. Wilkins had climbed onto a three-foot-high heater to reach the window but claimed the university should have posted warnings.
Once again, thanks for reading this and please give me any requests you might have for a post similar to this and I will try to do it,. (if you read this, hope you enjoy this Costanza!, you are one of the main reasons and people who convinced me to make this :) )
